    throughout the history of diaspora there has been a tug betwee israel and what she means for the jewish people, and the host countrys' values...in the end the jew is put in his place whether it is rome, spain, france, england, or the united states... america jews enjoy a greater freedom here than ever before without the distaste of being surrounded by people whio would slit the throats of our infant children and grandchildrento the glee of many around the world and even many here ... we in the usa cannot sit comfortably on our easy chairs and then dictate to those in the front lines of the war for jewish surviival and prognosticate ... the israelis can decide for themselves who to elect, who to marry...the push and pull of democracythere is profoundly tainted by the constant glitter of the arab knife...is abraham again to sacrifice a son to prove his worthiness to exist amont the natioins of the world... she is a light unto the nations, but they are blinded by the light... every conversation about israel by diaspora jews should be framed in the context of her right to exist and the right of her citizens to live without having to wonder if some righteous muslim will creep into their homes and slaughter their infant children, while obama and clinton fulminate of the cobstrution of apartments in jerusalem....
